WoW Insider has the latest on the Mists of Pandaria!

How to put WoW Insider on your web site and computer

Everyone these days either has a blog or a guild site that they post to regularly; and it's especially common amongst the World of Warcraft and the greater MMORPG community. One of the neat features of most of these sites is that they allow you to subscribe to other blogs, like WoW Insider. The software of these sites and tools can put up our headlines in easy to access places, so you and all your friends can stay up to date on the latest World of Warcraft news.

Getting this setup might seem like a hard thing to do, but it's really not. In fact, with our guide, complete with pictures, you'll be able to get WoW Insider's latest news on your site in no time! We give you step-by-step instructions for sites and software like Guild Portal, Guild Launch, Blogger.com, Word Press, vBulletin, Google Reader, Outlook, and more. We also tell you the info you need to get our news setup on any other site.

First a bit of background. We are a blog that publishes our news on what's called an RSS Feed. That's an acronym for Really Simple Syndication Feed. Basically it's a really cool technology that lets other sites syndicate what we publish. Back before RSS was invented, you used to have to manually go through and parse the HTML to syndicate a website's news. Not only was that illegal in some cases, it was also very time consuming and complicated. But RSS solves all that because it's so easy.

All you need to syndicate an RSS feed, like the one published by WoW Insider, are two things. First, you need a reader widget of sorts to put the content on your site, and then you need the RSS feed address. The RSS feed address for WoW Insider is http://wow.joystiq.com/rss.xml and will work with any RSS reader.

What are some of these RSS readers? Chances are your site already has one. Especially if you blog with popular blog software or use a popular guild website. Even if your site doesn't, you're not out of luck since we cover getting one setup with PHP (a programming language – don't be concerned, chances are you won't have to worry about this!).

Check out our guides for these different sites and pieces of software:
The author of this article, WoW Insider, and any affiliated organizations make no guarantees that the above methods will work. Use at your own risk. However that being said, they do work for us just fine. For technical support, leave a comment - and with a little luck a helpful person will come by and lend a hand.

Happy blogging!
